Finishing a project, first conference presentation tomorrow morning, W101 is on Kickstarter, Castlevania is back in March, I’m going to Scotland, and Nightwish just released their new single. Let’s fucking GO.


Hot take: Vanquish is not good enough to be anything more than a cult classic. Hotter take: Neither is Astral Chain, which is Platinum’s least-fun game since Infinite Space. Hottest take: Both are better than DMC5.


We can see downvotes now? Sweet! Now I can tell that one guy who downvoted my Cyberpunk 2077 gif to fuck off. https://www.destructoid.com/here-are-destructoid-s-most-anticipated-games-of-2020-575319.phtml


Three-pack, different games: 1. "Freedom is always sacrificed to faith, good hunter. Or are you truly here by choice?" 2. "> I'm going to find the thing that's doing this and I'm going to break its heart." 3. "Hrr, knew that was gonna be a shitty story."


Dtoid fam, today I am 32-bit. I'm going to spend my favorite day of the year relaxing in the desert while watching my friend get married. Celebrate your second-favorite witcher by having a righteous day and posting Mega Man in the comments. <3


I need spoiler-free opinions: I’m maybe 15–20 hours into Death Stranding and I’m not enjoying it. I love Kojima’s work, but I don’t have enough time to play something that long and not have fun. Am I going to miss the gaming experience of 2019 i


And with two 6,000-word papers out of the way, all work is done for the semester. I have two more classes and then I am finished with coursework forever. That’s such a strange thing to say. We’re gonna play videogames now, right?


Nothing hyped me more than the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack video.


I had fully intended to stay quiet until I finished the game (I'm not even close), but my god this soundtrack is awesome. Avoid looking at the comments or related videos. This track comes from the bonus album; I'm not sure where it plays in the game.


Well. See y’all when this ends. (For those of you wondering, the back of the steelbook is just black with the KojiPro logo.)


In November 2016, Amazon had a sale on unreleased games where they were all marked down by $10. I ordered NieR: Automata, Gravity Rush 2, Nioh, RDR2, and Death Stranding. I’ve watched Amazon slowly fulfill this order for three years. See comments.

Eastshade is really wonderful so far. In the first hour, my quests were to teach a child to paint, help a man get his head unstuck from a jar, and make a friend. I'd be more than happy to continue seeing nonviolent games in the mainstream like this.


Moments like this remind me why I’m a fervent supporter of Kickstarter.


This morning, I turned 1,000,000,000 seconds old. That somehow felt like a more substantial milestone than the past decade of birthdays.


Control joins Witcher 3, NieR: Automata, The Witness, and Bloodstained as my 5th Platinum. Absolutely remarkable game.


Astral Chain is cool but I’m going to be honest: I’d trade every one of these fucking Legions for a jump button. I’m confident saying you could skip this one and not miss what makes Platinum great.


Astral Chain has the steepest learning curve of any Platinum game I’ve ever played, barring W101 and Infinite Space. Fuck.


CDPR: “We’re pleased to announce Cyberpunk 2077 will have post-launch multiplayer!” Nintendo: “Hold my Kero Kero Kola.” (Also, Proto Man and Zero, but no X skin? Where’s my boy, Sakurai? He was in 4!)


Just finished Control. Remedy’s finest work to date. I liked how both James McCaffrey and Matthew Porretta played major roles in yet another passing-of-the-torch to the next Remedy protagonist. I probably missed Quantum Break references though.


GUESS WHAT TIME IT IIIIIIIIS! I’m going to be streaming Control as much of this weekend as possible, so leer at me on https://twitch.tv/shibboletho around noon EST I guess. *Edit*: LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!


Found these in the attic. Manuals, too. SSB cartridge is missing, and I don’t know if Goldeneye still works but it’s in there. I wonder what they’re worth. #thanksmom


Yo, my friend has finally gone professional artist and did the art for this Munchkin-like card game. He doesn't see any additional revenue from sales, but if you see this game somewhere, take a look. It's called The Adventurers. I'll put a link below.


All of my favorite wallpapers have come from the incredible Omer Tunc: https://www.artstation.com/mertun <3


The FFIX music bug has supposedly been fixed on the Switch. Can anyone confirm?


SGDQ crossed the $3M mark. Incredible.
